I imagine with all those houses heated with oil heat, that neighborhood must've smelled like a refinery on a cold winter day.
Wish they spent more time showing some of the finished homes and a little less Teeny Marone. Note how in those days they didnt waste the upper half story with rick rack..left it as useable living space!

If you need stock footage of construction, or if you live in Levittown, this will be priceless.
Also features a big fat construction worker named "Teeny".
